I would like to test some of the features of android kernel like inserting a module and collecting certain parameters for research purpose. What would you think the best method for that?

I'd insert a module and collect certain parameters. I don't understand what you're asking: are you having trouble inserting a module? Trouble finding values of the parameters you're interested in? Trouble retrieving the data from the device? Something else? – Gilles Dec 30 '11 at 22:11
@Gilles I havent done inserting module. Was asking which is the best way of doing that – user3539 Dec 31 '11 at 2:49

I would suggest you to go ahead with android emulator where you can compile android kernel and mess around without hurting anyone. Also check out this white paper on android kernel and it testing.
